    The idea is good but the execution is quite off… They have focused on the Interface of Windows rather than the back-end. The folder structure is different hence most programs wont install if you download them from a Windows Machine.

    Hence you can only download from their repository. So its really still Linux with a Windows Front-end. Its quite cool though. They will however need to work faster as Microsoft has rumors of making an Open Source version of their OS.

    If the Reactos team were not there, and doing what they are doing, then who will?

    How can anyone criticize a free (in development) os? It started 20 years ago..yes. But they are still there, even after all the tech changes and Internet explosion, in the meantime.

    I suspect when/if Reactos is finally released, (stable) it will be a serious challenger in the os world. And will not be playing catch-up.

    Can they do it? I believe Windows 10 has given them a chance. My opinion only.

    When I tried installing Reactos 0.4.3 in a virtual machine using VirtualBox 4.0.0.18 under Windows XP SP3, I obtained a blue screen when booting up Reactos after the installation had finished.
